The month of November flies by and already there are Christmas decorations up like what we saw last week in London! I like Fall decor items that can easily transition to Christmas by using elements with a natural feel and by keeping things a bit neutral.
Like the faux cedar green wreath above from Target. I bought it last month and tied a brown satin ribbon on it. After Thanksgiving, I will put a simple white or gold bow on it.
If you buy anything through my links I will receive a small commission. More about that here. Thanks.
Fall/Winter Décor I
Pinecones with lichen (I have some saved pinecones and I want to add moss and twine to them) • White berry sprigs (that can be used with Fall branches from your yard and later with pine branches). • Birch wrapped electric candles can be used all through Fall and Winter (comes with a remote control) • We put this faux eucalyptus wreath on my sister’s door in the Spring and it still looks great! • Two of these live lemon cypress topiaries would look good on your Thanksgiving table or Christmas mantel. • This magnolia leaf wreath would be pretty hanging on your door or in front of a large mirror.
Fall/Winter Décor II
And this pre-lit magnolia swag would be great on your mantel or door through both holidays. • A black and white table throw (comes in a runner, too) makes a striking tablesetting with rust color napkins for Thanksgiving and emerald green napkins for Christmas. • Pull out these extra chunky, neutral hand knitted throws for the cooler weather. • I bought this cool fresh eucalyptus with dried fruit wreath! • This antler hurricane candle holder would look great on a coffee table. • This inexpensive faux wreath is on our front door now but I’m going to put it on the console table with a hurricane candle in the middle.
See anything you like? I’m keeping our decorations fairly simple and use what we already have with little tweaks so that our Fall decor items easily transition to Christmas without a lot of fuss.
Celia from After Orange County sets a beautiful Thanksgiving table that could also work for Christmas…
And she made my Sicilian Sea Salt for party favors!
I’m in San Diego to pick up Chief after our trip. I got here yesterday. It’s actually cheaper for me to fly to SoCal with Chief (his ticket is $100 each way) to drop him off with family–he gets treated like a prince–and fly back to San Francisco with him than to pay for a kennel. And there’s the added bonus of seeing my family!
Although I am jetlagged at the moment…I’m not sure how my husband, Howard does it! I will write an updated post on Paris for your travel files soon… a few new perfect Paris things.
Have a beautiful day!!
